President,
By RICK GRAY
of The Daily Tar Heel Staff
Ken Day and Wayne Hurder
won the offices of President
of the Student Body and editor
of The Daily Tar Heel in
Tuesday's run off elections.
The official count showed
Day with a 2,431 to 2.272
margin over his opponent Jed
Dietz. In the editor's race,
Hurder defeated Steve Knowl
ton by 546 votes, 2,616 to
2,070.
In the first election Dietz
and Knowlton won pluralities.
Dietz by approximately 700
votes, and Knowlton by 35.
In his victory Day carried
23 of the 36 polling places.
Hurder carried 24.
Day's biggest wins came in
the dorms of lower quad. He
carried Lewis, in what was a
strong anti-Dietz vote, by 54
votes. 65-11. Graham provid
ed the next biggest margin
with a 38 vote spread going
to Day.
In Aycock, which went
strongly for Bruce Strauch in
the first vote, the margin was
only 18 in favor of Day. The
strong Dietz showing ap
parently was in reaction to
Strauch s endorsement of the
former vice-president.
Hurder's biggest spread
came in Ehringhaus where the
final tally was 198 to 66 in his
favor, a 132 vote majority.

He also gained much support
from the fraternities which
voted in several different poll
ing places. The biggest Hur
der win came in the Naval
Armory where the spread was
52 to 6. In Aycock, the Strauch
endorsement evidently came
through again and provided
Hurder with a 70 to 18 mar
gin. In the women's dorms it was
again Dietz who won the ma
jority of the vote. Day was
able to win in Cobb and Spen
cer where the vote was 123 to

'Cooperation' Praised
UNC Reform CMed
By TODD COHEN
of The Daily Tar Heel Staff
Phil Werdell, who has been
called the outstanding
journalist in the nation on
educational reform, conducted
an inspection Monday and
Tuesday of the experimental
college and other student-initiated
programs on campus.
Werdell. a staff member of
the American Council on
Education (ACE), consulted
with student leaders of the
programs here under the
auspices of ACE.
He talked Monday to the
Daily Tar Heel, presenting his
impressions of the status of
educational reform at UNC .
and in the nation.
The former National Student
Association staff member and
former editor of Moderator
magazine believes UNC is
"without a doubt one of the
most progressive schools in the
South."
He qualified that statement
by pointing out a difficulty
in comparing UNC with
schools in other areas of the
country whose problems differ
from those in the South.
Werdell said what impressed
him at UNC was the "degree
to which students were able
to cooperate with the faculty
and administration." .
This cooperation, he urged,
is "significantly more than in
95 of the schools in the coun
try." Werdell said his tendency
in evauuaiing the cooperation
was to give "a lot of the
credit to the students."
Werdell expressed sympathy
with the growing student call
for freedom and power,
He said although ACE has
decided not to take a position

Joyner. 73-30, Winston 59-40,
and Spencer by 60-48. The
rest of the women's dorms
went to Knowlton.
The official counts showed
that 4,554 votes were cast in
the president's race, and 4,680
in the editor's race.
The elections board, in
counting the vote, took only
two hours to finish the tabu
lation, in comparison to the
five hours that was taken on
April 9.
Both of the winners jumped
into early leads, and then
held them throughout the
counting. The last two dorms
in, Morrison and James, were
PHIL WERDELL
it is his judgement that the
Bill "should be adopted at
every college and university .
in the nation."
The Bill has been approved
by four national educational
bodies and is pending vote by
others.
It calls for student freedom
in six areas of academic life.
Werdell believes passage of
the bill is "really necessary
to continue a growth of an
alliance between students and
faculty and administration who
are interested in educational
reform."
The Bill, he feels, represents
a confidence in the student
expressed by the ad
ministration and faculty.
Passage of the bill symbolizes
the death of in loco parentis,
which should have died years
ago, he added.
Werdell said he is "not
against" the recent student
demonstrations at Columbia

actually inconsequential. By
that time it would have taken
almost a 3 to 1 win for either
Dietz or Knowlton to pull out
a victory, and by the. time the
Morrison votes were counted,

been necessary.

University, in which two ad
ministators and four school
workers wee held hostage, and
five buildings were seized.
He said, however, that one
of the "critical eelments in
volved was the conscious and
intentional civil disobedience."
Werdell stated that he
agrees with Columbia Presi
dent Grayson Kirk that "those
who break the law will pay
the penalty."
The ACE member believes
the experimental college at
UNC is one of the seven best
in th United States.
He said in the college's brief
existence of two years, it has
achieved "some really im
pressive gains" in the mumber
of courses and students in
volved. Werdell saw much room for
high rise dorms on South Cam-
pus.
"I'm impressed by how
sterile those buildings are,"
he said.
He saw an apparent effort
to design the dorms to "im
prove the alienation and
desocialization of the
students."
He believes "a tremendous
amount of work is going to
have to be done to bring the
quality of experience in those
dorms up to the level of the
main campus."
He cited the Reach program
as "needed more than any
In the high - rise dorms."
This program, he feels,
"seems to be headed towards
what is the critical problem:
providing the atmosphere and
mechanism through which peo
ple can get together in terms
of their own needs."
The architecture of the South
Campus buildings seems to be
"dsigned to prevent" such aa
atmosphere, he said.

it will begin at 11:15 a.m.
on May 12 and end whenever
the last panting racer churns
over the finish line.
Applications for the race are
available at the Graham
Memorial Information Desk
and at Duke. David Porter,
a junior at State, and Bicycle
Club member, said the course
will begin at the school's Bell
Tower and end at the Duke
Chapel. The route will be N.
C. Highway 54 through Cary
to the Research Triangle.
There the riders follow
Cornwallis Road to Durham
and then Old Chapel Hill Road,
Anderson Street and Campus
(Drive to the checkered flag.
A map of the route is in
cluded with the entry forms
and Porter recommended that
contestants ride over the
course at least once prior to
the race.
He also advised out-of-shape
bicyclists to "train" if they
plan to enter the race by riding
"until they're tired" dailv.
To "set up" their bikes for
racing, he said they should
lower the handle bars and ride
from a crouching position "to
cut down wind resistence."
Seats should be raised to
where the foot touches the
pedal and the leg is straight.
Pedalling should be done with
the ball of the foot, he added.
Porter inspected the race
course Tuesday and thinks it
"looks good, except for the
inside of Durham, which might
be a little bit hairy."
An attempt will be made
to mark the course and secure
police assistance at crowded
intersections.
"Actually it's not at all that
far." he said of the 26-mile
race course. "If you go at
a nice even pace it's not bad
at all."
